François Ozon returns with this beautiful black and white drama, set in the German town of Quedlinburg in the aftermath of WWI.
Grieving the loss of her husband Frantz who died during the conflict, Anna meets Adrien, a mysterious Frenchman laying flowers at Frantz’s grave who tells her that he was friends with Frantz in Paris before the war.
Despite the community’s animosity towards Adrien, his and Anna’s relationship begins to grow, but the scars of the conflict run deep and Anna suspects Adrien is not telling her the truth about Frantz.
